Juan Gutierrez Treviño, better known by the Seguin community as "Johnny" or "Mr. T," passed away peacefully, surrounded by his loving family and friends on Tuesday, June 29, 2021, at the age of 82. On February 26, 1939, Johnny was born to Adolfo Treviño and Juanita (Gutierrez) Treviño in Seguin, where he lived his entire life.
Johnny, "aka Mr. T," was an active community leader always ready to extend a helping hand. He was a member of Our Lady of Guadalupe Church and a Chartered Member of the Seguin-Guadalupe County Hispanic Chamber of Commerce. In addition, he gave back to his community by supporting numerous charitable organizations, including St James Catholic School, Seguin High School, Seguin Chamber of Commerce, LULAC, Pan American Golf Association, Teatro de Los Artes, The Lions Club, Seguin Youth Services, and various sports teams and leagues.
At the age of 19, Johnny became a businessman and entrepreneur. Everyone knew he was a self-starter. Johnny built many successful businesses throughout his career, including J.G. Trevino Contractor, County Wide Disposal, El Fiesta Ballroom, and The Entertainer. He was also a partner at Welcome Home Inn in San Marcos.
One of Johnny's most remarkable accomplishments — one that he often mentioned was having a family. His wife, daughters, and grandchildren were his world. He was a loving family man, steadfast in providing them with the tools necessary to maneuver through anything that they would face in life.
He is preceded in death by his parents, Adolfo, and Juanita Treviño; sisters, Consuelo Medina, Virginia Urias, Esperanza Salas, Pauline Rodriguez, Socorro Riojas, Hortencia Hernandez; brother, Adolfo Treviño and half-sister, Louisa Campos.
